Q: To steal from your Facebook page: “Creative placemaking, sustainable river recreation, student entrepreneurship, affordable housing, social media marketing, visitor’s center, Tree Advisory Committee, Dark Skies initiative, business alliance, grant projects, event promotion and beautification are a few projects that will keep me busy this year. Chamber mixers, rural policy forums, tiny house research — it’s a whole new era.” Explain your plans and any projects you’re particularly excited about?
A: Tiny Houses and student entrepreneurship are two of my most exciting projects.
Tiny Houses are high-quality homes under 400 square feet with lots of personality, which creatively addresses the lack of affordable housing for various demographics. It’s also an opportunity to build pocket neighborhoods, each with a unique cultural identity, which may center around agriculture or the arts.
